AUBREY P. GRAHAM is a professional photographer and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape. She holds a PhD in Anthropology from Emory University and masters degrees from Emory (in Anthropology) and the School of Oriental and African Studies (in Social Anthropology of Development). Her visual and written works strive to challenge stereotypical depictions of Africa within the fields of journalistic and humanitarian photography. Since 2009 her research has employed photography as both method and theory as she explores the politics, imagination, and implications of humanitarian and local photography in North Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo. She has published on this research with the journals Social Dynamics and Visual Methodologies. Aubrey has a background as a photojournalist and communications photographer, and continues her visual practice both within her research, and as a photographic consultant for humanitarian and development agencies.
